Let’s look forward to the new range of fabric and wallpapers from Villa Nova.

Mariken is a vivid collection inspired by nature in zingy fresh colours.

This lively range features meadow grasses and graphic ginkgo leaves, all printed on textured cloths.

A multi-coloured geometric design and print stripe are perfectly balanced by a contemporary striped wide width sheer in co-ordinating colour.

Wide-width sheer voiles are very useable and can be made very attractive as straightforward curtains or, for the more adventurous, these can be created into a roll wrap fitted onto a pole.

Whether it be curtains, roman blinds, pelmets of any designs, or just the simplest of scatter cushions, all these fabrics complement each other.

Another way to bring colour and life to a room is by using a patterned fabric to create a wall hanging, or have a simple lampshade made in a contrasting fabric for a table lamp, a standard lamp, pendant or wall light. All these can be made up with additional accessories, such as adding a fringe, braiding or a bling trim.

Contrasting fabrics, such as the fantastic Geneva vintage fabric, are a wonderful way to complement any window dressing in the bedroom. For example, on bed headboards, curtains on kidney-shaped dressing tables, and upholstered sofas, chairs or foot stools.

Geneva vintage has a distressed stonewash look, which gives the fabric a faded, casual appearance and a beautiful soft texture.

As well as all these lovely fabrics, Villa Nova has a fantastic range of wall coverings.

For instance, the Impressions wallpapers are embossed vinyl wall coverings which replicate woven fabrics and painterly brush strokes.

Clean lines, fashionable colour combinations and simple organic motifs define the nature inspired in this collection.
